gritty, grounded, and engaging throughout
24 May 2018 | by allen-125See all my reviews

The script and direction are rock solid and offer up a very incisive look at life after combat. Committed and authentic performances help keep you engaged the whole way through, and the cinematography and editing are top shelf as well. Highly recommended for anyone who's interested in learning more about the emotional toll that battle takes on both soldiers and those waiting for them back home.
